OpenBox TS-480HX MARS/CAP, HF/6m, 200W

This is an open box radio that has been MARS/CAP modified, and the SO-3 and VGS-1 filters installed.  This radio has been tested and found to perform as expected.  

The Kenwood TS-480HX HF/50MHz Transceiver can provide up to 200W of output power on HF and 100W on 50MHz, requiring 41A at max power level. Bands covered are 160M, 80M, 60M, 40M, 30M, 20M, 17M, 15M, 12M, 10M and 6M. The TS-480HX features two power terminals for separate supply to each half of the twin final section; voltage balance is optimized to ensure stable output. The 480HX also features twin cooling fans for enhanced cooling efficiency during heavy operating use. A Digital Noise Limiter with 3 level settings is highly effective in removing even the pulse noise that cannot be eliminated with conventional analog circuitry and noise blankers. Other features such as RX Dynamic, CW Support, AF Digital Signal Processing (TX/RX), Beat Cancel (SSB/AM only), Noise Reduction, TX/RX Equalizer, AF Filters, TX Filter, Speech Processor and CW Auto Tune make the Kenwood TS-480HX a joy to operate! The separated LCD Control panel with speaker can be freely positioned up to 13 feet from the main unit. The control panel also features 34 keys, each with backlighting to enhance operating ease. Up to 2 optional IF filters can be installed as well as the optional Voice Guide and Storage unit. PC-Based control is achieved with the ARCP-480 radio control program that is freely downloadable from the Kenwood website. In the box with the Kenwood TS-480HX you will find a hand microphone, 2 DC power cables, 6-pin male mini DIN plug, 8-pin male mini DIN plug, 4M RJ-11 modular cable, 2 25A fuses, 1 4A fuse, screw set for brackets, 2 L-Brackets, a panel holder, mobile panel bracket, base panel bracket, line filter for panel, instruction manual, warranty card and schematic/block diagrams. The TS-480HX shares virtually all the same powerful features as the 100W TS-480SAT, except the built-in antenna tuner! Be sure to order your Kenwood TS-480HX from GigaParts today!
